Can Chili Be Healthy?

Everyone around here loves Chili. I had been searching for a while for a healthier version. I found this Weight Watchers Zero Point Chili (means you can have 2 servings) on Pinterest. I have not tried it yet but the reviews were sooo positive, I decided to share right away. They say it is even better the next day. Since so many of my readers are also Chili lovers I think this might be our go to fall recipe. Bon Appetit!!
